I’m the anti-nano

Nanowrimo has come and gone. I literally did ... well, the same thing I always do. I wrote a few words, worked, parented children, and I have gone on just as I have always done.

Feeling a little witchy this week.

Excerpt from the unreleased portion of  my Southern Gothic series. Adra stared at the splotched paint on the wall before her.

Your regularly scheduled program

  It has been a long and brutal summer. Like every author alive, I've been going through a thing. You know that thing. It's the thing that where you run out of steam, and you try to push through it. But, you can't, and you start to question your writing, your mission, nay, your existence. That... Continue Reading →
